MEMPHIS, Tenn. — The Memphis murder suspect who was captured in Chattanooga on Tuesday appeared in a Shelby County Court on Thursday.

Courtney Crutcher was wanted on first-degree murder charges for allegedly killing Ralph Martin and wounding Jeremiah Isom with a handgun back in September.

But before police could detain him, Crutcher fled to Chattanooga where he was captured by a US Marshals Task Force.

No bond was set on Thursday when he appeared in court.

He is now in custody in Shelby County.
